I am fortunate as my two children get along well. They are excited to see each other every single morning – it never gets old! And they play well together most of the time. Now, I’m not saying they don’t have their moments, with occasional shouts and repeated yelled-out requests from each of them to ‘share’ – that’s a word that Little Man has learned quite early in life. He knows it to scream it at his sister, but not necessarily to actually apply it 😉
Anyhoo, here’s a moment that I enjoyed and cherished this week.
Little Man loves his trains. If I ask him what he’d like to play, he’ll often say ‘choo choo’. So, we set up a train track, and they both sat and played with it together, each in their own worlds, muttering away to themselves, yet playing along side each other so nicely. Little Man often asks for choo choos, but then destroys the track within seconds, which leads to a fair bit of consternation from Boo! But not this time. Nope, he played happily and so she played happily.
Another sign that he’s growing up, and another moment where I realise how lucky I am to have two lovely children, who get along so well together. It was one of those stop and enjoy it times, that as parents we can often miss. I’m glad I spotted it.
